Cool! Surprising Tiger Woods 08 content. Neat stuff.
We were pretty close on the Rumored Upcoming Content Thread: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=psnetwork&thread.id=205031

I am SOOO glad I didn’t get sucked into EA’s snare with Tiger Woods. I’m done with that series. Five bucks for a course when you paid $60 for a “full” game which has less than the PS2 versions!!!

HA!!!

+ GamerMan76 on March 20th, 2008 at 12:58 pm said:

What time Est does the store update again?

Normally this message is up after the content is up :)

If you want to make it a hbit to release the information before the store update.. I won’t mind at all :D

Now this is a pretty good update Sony :)

Me = Happy…

+ StalkingSilence on March 20th, 2008 at 1:00 pm said:

Sony – please open another bank account. Upon further review of your full list, I will be sending you more money this week. Seriously thanks for all the great content and recent increase in communication (blog posts for PS3 and PSP firmware BEFORE release). Simply awesome.
Hope to see a Hot Shots: Out of Bounds demo (next week maybe?)

+ rukusa on March 20th, 2008 at 1:03 pm said:

Awesome update…. but seriously guys, release those PSone games for PSN that youre hiding.

We all know they’re coming already just by looking at the info on ESRB.

Instead of playing mute and running around corners with just tell us when to expect ‘em okay?

You’ve already stacked up a larged batch of them. Now we’re just waiting for the moment that you decide to throw us that bone to shut us up.

+ btutterrow on March 20th, 2008 at 1:04 pm said:

Great update PSP-wise! A PSOne game would have made it complete, but we all know that those don’t exist anymore :)


14

+ CurryUdon on March 20th, 2008 at 1:04 pm said:

More PS1 Games please (not that Grace ever reads any of our comments)

damn good update. cant wait to try condemned2.

+ infamous_31 on March 20th, 2008 at 1:05 pm said:

psone games?……hello sony


17

+ StalkingSilence on March 20th, 2008 at 1:06 pm said:

@6
I know – I can’t believe they are charging money to let you unlock the full stats for a player (presumably for online play). It should flag anyone who has paid for the game unlock and I’ll know never to play a game with them again. That’d be like paying $2.49 to have someone rainbow all the levels in PixelJunk Monsters for me. How is that fun?

+ stew122 on March 20th, 2008 at 1:06 pm said:

HELLOOOOO???

wheres the echocrome demo?

the jap store got it like two weeks ago

is the game not comin out in NA or is the demo jus comin in the next few weeks anything u can say?

even if u say “theres nothing i can say” thats coo by me :P

Just one question.. Why does Europe get soo small updates?! like 2 movie trailers, just got Pain this week, nothing like this updates though! :(

plz? :) /Thomas – Sweden


21

+ Neil on March 20th, 2008 at 1:10 pm said:

Looks great! We like demos and we got two of them!


22

+ StalkingSilence on March 20th, 2008 at 1:15 pm said:

The Turnberry Golf Resort is FREE? Ok, maybe I should give EA another shot. Is that 100% correct? If so – pretty cool.


23

+ Ramage on March 20th, 2008 at 1:17 pm said:

That’s what I’m talkin’ about. demos, add-on content, and trailers ftw. although i am disappointed there are no themes this week…and the update isn’t actually available yet but at least i know whats coming.


24

+ Vegaz on March 20th, 2008 at 1:19 pm said:

Going to start charging the correct prices in Canada any time soon? I’m not buying anything else untill they’re equal as they should be and not 50 cents to $3 more.

Already had to get Rock Band on that other system because of the rediculous prices.


25

+ DaveTheStalker on March 20th, 2008 at 1:20 pm said:

Ah yes….please give us GT1 and GT2!!! My originals were destroyed and I don’t want to buy some garbage off of eBay that has no book, no case, and costs way too much.


26

+ MICHELBRAVO on March 20th, 2008 at 1:23 pm said:

good update. but where is it. i just turned on the ps3 and there is nothing new in the store. why is that ps3 is not getting the beta for battlefield badcompany, not that im complaining because i got it for my xbox 360 and it looks like i got lucky because my friend tried to get it after me and it said that the beta was fool. telling you the truth i like the ps3 better, i just got the xbox 360 to play with my friends the games that they dont have for ps3 and in game message is cool in the xbox so you guys need to do this on the ps3. we dont really need update to connect the psp to the ps3, i have two psp my self i dont want to connect them to the ps3. ps3 needs in game message and in game music as well as more demos of new games. also release more ps games in the online store.

+ scorpio on March 20th, 2008 at 1:24 pm said:

Great stuff, thanks again…..


28

+ subbed on March 20th, 2008 at 1:28 pm said:

Good update. Wanted to try that flatout game on the psp.

MICHELBRAVO that was EA DICE choice to go only 360 for the BETA of Battlefield. makes sense since its the lead platform.


29

+ CyberChrist on March 20th, 2008 at 1:29 pm said:

Thanks for the better update. Would’ve been perfect with a PS1 game which, for some reason I was actually expecting. Now that the first Legacy of Kain and Pandemonium have been added to the ESRB list slated for the PSN, I hope we’ll finally see some more PS1 games with the new store layout in April.

+ GamerMan76 on March 20th, 2008 at 1:34 pm said:

Update showed up at 4:30 EST (GMT -5:00) so it’s available now

awesome awesome awesome update. I’ve been wanting to try condemned 2 but I’m not willing to buy it without a playtest


37

+ convicsik on March 20th, 2008 at 1:40 pm said:

Nice update !! Now if only you guys could give us these kind of updates every week you would be on to something ;P

I am getting a little frustrated and impatient with the whole “HOME” fiasco. Sony is even advertising it in commercials now, yet they haven’t even announced a release date for it.


38

+ Gregero on March 20th, 2008 at 1:40 pm said:

Sony,

Now that’s a PS Store update. I’m very happy this week with the amount of content you put on the U.S. store. I really hope you keep this trend up for the rest of the year as we do know that there are MANY games coming out this year. Nothing to complain about this week and that means you made a great update. Bravo and keep’em coming just like this.

+ Thwip on March 20th, 2008 at 1:41 pm said:

Thanx! Nice update!


40

+ EvoAnubis on March 20th, 2008 at 1:42 pm said:

See, now THIS is an update! Everytime you do an update, this is how it should be done. Although, throwing in a few PS1 Classics wouldn’t be an entirely bad idea….


41

+ kalistar on March 20th, 2008 at 1:45 pm said:

I give credit where credit is due. I have been bashing the updates for the last few weeks and rightfully so. This one is better. Still could use some ps1 games and Sony needs to give the UK store a lot more. Good update. Thanks.

Bravo Sony, Bravo!

Let the game die, Spark Unlimited.

It got a 3.25 review from GI.

Glad we got the Condemned demo, but we really need HOME to tie everything toogether.

C’mon Sony, bring your fans HOME.
